Dear Runners,

If you’re anything like us and the many runners we know, you’ve probably got your sights set on your spring races, perhaps even the Instant Classic.  This race is near and dear to our hearts…it is a great source of pride for us, but also a huge responsibility – one we do not take lightly.  However, this year, we have both had some very exciting things going on within our own lives and careers that have, unfortunately, not allowed us to focus on the 2016 Instant Classic.

After recent discussions, we have come to the conclusion that we must take a year off.  While we love supporting the Fisher House and all the wonderful things they do for our veterans, we are not willing to just throw together an event just for the sake of doing it.  The Fisher House deserves more than that, and so do our runners.  We are very proud of what we’ve done so far – can you believe that we’ve donated almost $50,000 to the Fisher House?  Amazing, and we have all of you to thank for that.

We are not counting ourselves out – far from it – we are just asking for your understanding as we take some time to focus on our other obligations.

All our best to you, and we hope to see you in 2017!

Happy Running,
Nicole & Camille
